Sea of Stars (Kricket, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.

A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sea of Stars (Kricket, #2) “Has anybody ever told you that you’re irritating?”
“No. Everybody loves me,”

This was an okay sequel, but I did find it confusing in places.

Kricket seemed to need constant baby sitting in this book, which wasn’t quite what I expected. It just seemed like she’d constantly got someone with her looking after her and trying to keep her safe, and I was surprised that she put up with it!

The storyline in this confused me a bit, and I found it hard to follow. The romance angle moved forward, and we even got some naked scenes, but I did find it really hard to keep track of what exactly was going on. This felt like a bit of a filler book for me, and it didn’t seem like much happened, other than just keeping Kricket safe, and discussing how brilliant her hair was (cutting it causes her to not age?).

The ending to this also confused me a bit, but based on where it ended, the ending was a bit of a cliff-hanger.

6 out of 10
